The annual Nude Olympics, which pulls more than 600 people a year to Noosa’s Alexandria Bay has been cancelled. The Australian Naturist Federation decided on the move after police started to fine nude men swimming in Alexandra Bay with wilful exposure. Nude women were not fined.
The event, organised by the Australian Naturist Federation, will now be held this March at Byron Bay, either at its legal Tyagarah nude beach or the north Belongil Beach. Negotiations have already begun with Byron Shire Council to hold the 2017 Nude Olympics at Belongil Beach.
ANF spokesman Stuart Whelan – who owns a naturists’ retreat in New South Wales – said the decision meant several million dollars in accommodation and restaurant takings was now lost to Noosa.
“We are talking several million dollars that will no longer be going through the local economy,” Mr Whelan said.
The logic of the decision to begin arresting nude male bathers, but not nude female bathers is frankly bizarre. Not only is it discriminatory and sexist but it will cost the local economy dear. I can only assume it was taken to demonstrate a smug sense of PC-ness on the part of the authorities.
Yet another case of the growing sanctimonious puritanism which is becoming so popular right now? It is replacing common-sense and in this case costing real money.
Let’s hope the voters remember.
Throughout 2016 – and specifically from 2nd to 4th September – BN are inspiring people to strip off and take a skinny dip, to discover how being naked is good for you and to help change our country’s attitudes towards nudity and body image.
The Great British Skinny Dip has been organised to create an up-beat, health-focused, exciting event for anyone in the UK to take part in.
So what are you waiting for?
MORE than half of British holidaymakers would consider going on a nudist holiday, stripping off to sunbathe or visiting a naturist beach, according to a new report.
The survey from the lastminute.com website revealed that more than a third of British men (35 per cent) said they would consider naked sunbathing this year and 14 per cent would go on a naturist holiday.
However, for women the corresponding figures were 17 per cent and six per cent.
Around eight per cent of those surveyed had been on a naturist holiday, but a third (33 per cent) of self-confessed nudists admitted to keeping it secret from friends, family and colleagues.
The most popular reason to bare all on the beach was to achieve an all-over tan (42 per cent), while 21 per cent did it to “reconnect with nature” and a fifth (20 per cent) wanted to “step out of their comfort zone”.
Andrew Welch, from British Naturism, the UK’s umbrella organisation for the pastime, said: “For those visiting a nudist beach for the first time, the best advice is to relax.
“Enjoy the sensation of the sun, breeze and sea on your whole body and realise that no-one is worried about how you look.”
Since the 1960s, naturists have gathered on a section of Broome’s famous Cable Beach known as “north of the rocks”, to sunbake, fish and swim in the nude.
But veterans of the scene say about a decade ago, things began to change. The local tourism industry boomed, and suddenly, the nudists were coming under close scrutiny.
Read this great article on the decline of nudism in the area. And if you can, get along there, strip off, and give the local nudists some support!

Proof that the world recession isn’t wholly a bad thing.
The City fathers of Key West, Florida are “considering whether or not to allow nude bathing at one of their beaches”, citing the success of the designated naturist beach at Haulover Beach Park on Miami Beach.
The clincher may be the economic situation. Commissioners point to the success of Haulover and also the increased tourist revenues of nearby Cuba, which has official nudist beaches.
The commissioners hope to put it to the ballot in October. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!
